    I used my Curls & Potions Chebe & Mint Growth Stimulating Rice Water this morning.

    This is my second bottle. Im not sure if I like it yet because the entire time my hair has been in crochet braids. My hair is coming out this week so I will access then and re-order if necessary.

    I checked my stash and I’m almost completely out of xcel I’ve got about half a bottle :cry3:

    I don’t want to order online so I’m gonna have to see if this beauty supply on the ground still has it

    Last time I bought bottles I went to 3 store before I found it

    I don’t care to much for the VHF because the smell makes my head hurt So once that done I may make a batch of Ayurvedic growth oil I saw on YouTube and use that during inversion week
    I also have a bottle of m-t-g that I never used that’s just sitting in the back of my hair closet so maybe I’ll use that during inversion week


    Outside of inversion week I just try to let the xcel do its thing and I think it’s working... I just need to work on maintaining any growth

    I would like to observe this challenge. Never used growth aides before, but I'm desperately looking for something to help with my edges. I'll just be here taking notes. :)

    Tonight:

    I mixed some Banyan Botanicals Bhringaraj oil inside my jar of Castor Argan scalp drops with a few drops each of Peppermint, Rosemary and Calendula essential oils. Massaged it on my scalp for a couple of minutes.

    So my first move is to try a stimulating shampoo. If it works, I will move to making a DIY version since the base ingredients are black soap and Shea butter.

    @mzteaze
    What do you plan to add to make it "stimulating"?

    Peppermint and/or other EO's or are you adding something else?
